Activity Overview

One of the most beautiful nature areas in Austin is the Barton Creek Greenbelt, which is known for its popular hiking trail. Two of the most exciting attractions that can be found along the trail are Twin Falls and Sculpture Falls, two natural waterfalls on Barton Creek that are used as local swimming holes. Once you've hiked to either of the sites, you'll be rewarded with the chance to hop into the cool, refreshing water and swim in the sunshine.

Things to Do

  • Hike to Twin Falls - you can cool off by wading in the creek along the way, and go swimming in the creek once you reach Twin Falls. In some places, the water is often deep enough that you can even jump off the upper ledge of the falls into the cool water below.
  • Continue your hike to Sculpture Falls! After passing caves and huge oak trees, you'll reach an even larger swimming hole to splash and play in.
  • Enjoy features like rope swings and tightropes that you can use at Sculpture Falls.

Twin Falls & Sculpture Falls Insider Tips

  • If you don't want to hike the entire Barton Creek Greenbelt trail, park in the lot on the Mo-Pac access road just south of 360. From there, it's about half a mile to Twin Falls, and another mile to Sculpture Falls.
  • Bring along plenty of water so that you don't get dehydrated in the heat.
  • Don't leave any valuables in your car - there have been cases of theft in the parking area in the past.
  • Feel free to get your dog some exercise by bringing them along on your family hike.
  • The rocks often get slippery from the water, so make sure to bring along water shoes or other shoes that will help to keep you from slipping.
